Balcastle Seller Speaks

Last week, we reported that Southampton's Balcastle estate hit the market for $4.25 million; now, the NYTimes offers up backstory on the seller, who seems to have saved the place from the brink of destruction: "[Owner] bought it in 1998 and spent years restoring it, taking out dropped ceilings and a Swedish-modern kitchen." His loving words for the place? "“It's really like a benign eyesore." [NYTimes]
